FOUND™ follows a standard procedure of using log files. These files log visitors when they visit websites. All hosting companies do this and are a part of hosting services' analytics. The information collected by log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. These are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. The purpose of the information is to analyze trends, administer the site, track users' movement on the website, and gather demographic information.
Cookies and Web Beacons
Like any other website, FOUND™ uses 'cookies'. These cookies are used to store information including visitors' preferences, and the pages on the website that the visitor accessed or visited. The information is used to optimize the users' experience by customizing our web page content based on visitors' browser type and/or other information.
Cookies are small bits of data (information) stored as plain text files on a user's computer through the website browser. Cookies are also called HTTP Cookies because they can be transmitted only through HTTP.
Cookies are necessary so that most websites work properly. A basic website can function without serving cookies, but most websites need some cookies stored on the user's computer so that the website remembers the user's language preference and other preferences.
Cookies are created and stored on the user's computer when the user's browser loads a particular website. The website sends information to the browser which then creates a text file, known as a "cookie". Every time the user goes back to the same website, the browser retrieves and sends this "cookie" file to the website.
Types of Cookies
There are multiple types or categories of cookies:
Session Cookies are temporary cookies stored in the user's browser memory until the browser is closed. When the browser is closed, these cookies are deleted.
Persistent Cookies are cookies that have an expiration.
